    Default Disabled Wifi Greyed

    I bought an iphone 3G 8GB off ebay and when it arrived i updated and restored it without checking if the wifi was working or not. anyway after update and restore i ran blackra1n still without checking if the wifi worked or not.
    The case is now the wifi is greyed and i can't do anything about it. i did a reset network settings.. i restored to original firmware and restored again with custom firmwares many times with no luck. i have been looking on the internet for a while but most of the tutorials are for 1. gen iphones. i have firmware 3.2.1 with modem firmware 05.11.07

    i need to know if it's a hardware issue and how i can test if it is and how to fix it.

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    Look at the boot messages via
    Code:
    syslog
    see if you get one of the problems described in this wiki post.

    There is a sbsettings toggle to turn on and off syslog search Cydia for "Syslog Toggle"

    be careful to only turn it on when you need it, as it will fill up the disk quickly.

    The contents (when the toggle is on) will be at
    Code:
    /var/log/syslog
    I suggest that you grab this file using iPhone Browser or your favourite AFC2 client and view the contents on your desktop computer.

    Okay, not a problem.. just requires a few restarts.. I would recommend not installing everything at once. Especially recommend installing Mobile Sustrate by itself.

    You need a syslog from a reboot to see these messages.
    Put the syslog on pastebin.com

    You definitely have the wifi problem...

    #Jan 19 15:55:07 MyPhone-3Gs SpringBoard[29]: WiFi: Consulting "no-sdio-devices" property.
    #Jan 19 15:55:07 MyPhone-3Gs SpringBoard[29]: ERROR: WiFi device not found.
    There is no known fix for this... you are also using blacksn0w which makes it much more likely you will experience this problem.
